    By default MediaPortal uses the RTSP protocol for LiveTV on a multi-seat installation. How did you setup UNC??
    As for the (potential) error: we need full debug logs & system specs (see my signature)

    Enabling 'use UNC' in the debug options got live TV working again. Makes sense that the option got unset as I did a complete uninstall and re-install.
    But there does seem to be something not working quite right for the RTSP streaming. It just shows a black screen.
    Attached are debug logs from when using RTSP and the screen is just black.

    Obviously this is not correct... but it is the reason for the black screen. TsReader has not connected a video codec because it thinks there is no video.
    Check your firewall permissions - I suspect MP being blocked is the underlying cause of all this.

    Ages ago gemx introduced a firewall/ports check into MyTv that should alarm the user if a port is not open.
    So I am wondering if blocked ports are the cause of this issue, why is that screen not showing up. :confused:
